Chevron Corp., owner of six U.S. oil refineries with the capacity to process more than 1.2 billion barrels per day, is one of the few U.S. oil companies still committed to having a direct-operated retail network. The company operates 330 ExtraMile convenience stores, and another 420 or so sites are operated by franchisees, all in the states of Washington, Oregon and California.

The company remains committed to the c-stores and continues to upgrade the ExtraMile concept. The core focus is packaged beverages, coffee, tobacco and foodservice, and the company strives for a consistent customer experience, regardless if the store is company-operated or a franchise.

The company plans to continue to add franchises, growing to 800-1,000 franchise sites and adding 30 to 50 per year.
